One by one, more companies are pulling ads from Facebook

It all started with North Face removing ads from Zuckerberg’s brainchild and it’s snowballing pretty hard. In case you’re wondering why North Face, REI, Upwork, and several other companies are following suit to pull ads is because of FB’s double standards with treating hate groups compared to anti-racist posts.

I distinctly remember a story a few years ago where a Black woman did a simple #SupportBlackBusinesses hashtag which is quite innocent. However, her account got suspended for a week or two after posting that on her status. Conversely, there have been multiple white supremacy groups functioning on the site and they rarely ever get punished. So many companies are seeing the clear hypocrisy and decided to cash out as to not be a part of anything bigoted (I’m being generous here, but I do appreciate them seeing some kind of morality in this case). So apparently, Facebook can lose over $70 billion this month? WOW! Just, wow. It’s also a good thing I haven’t been on Facebook in years as it started getting toxic even when I left. I couldn’t imagine how bad it’s been since then.

Maybe this will get Zuckerberg to finally stop coddling hate groups? We’ll see…
